So you haven't entered the International Pet Photographer of the Year Awards yet. I get it - it can be overwhelming trying to decide on which photo to pick, finding the time to enter - or maybe you're experiencing a lovely dose of imposter syndrome "there's no way I'd ever win, so why bother . . ."
Well, I'm just popping on today to be your own personal cheerleader. You can do this! You LOVE photographing pets. You work hard to constantly improve your business and your photography. Whether you've been doing it for 10 weeks or 10 years, there's a place for you in these awards. Believe in yourself and your art.
Let me tell you, we had so many messages of joy and surprise from photographers around the world last year as the Top 100 and Top 25 shortlists were released. A common response was "I never expected to be shortlisted!" Pet photographers seem to be a humble breed! So if checking out the previous years’ winners has you doubting yourself, set your goal this year to make it into the Top 100. Remember, you’ve got to be in it to win it!
